Of the two, I preferred Premeiras. Been to Laz 2 times and each time we've lost days because there's nowhere to hide when things get nasty. When you have to run from the banks, it's so far out that not many charters will take you back there. So if it gets nasty on day 3 and you have to head for the islands, that's it... In all likelihood, you won't be going back. That being said, the fishing on Laz can be excellent at times. If you've headed to the islands for shelter, fishing round the islands is terrible... Fished out by the artisanal guys.

What I like about Premeiras is that it's varied. I assume you'll be reef hopping all the way up to Fogo. There's some fantastic reefs along the way (assuming your skipper knows what he's doing. But there is also the chance of hiding out in the lee of islands when the sea turns on it's head. We had to hide behind Fogo for 2 days and had great fun catching Bonefish on light tackle.
